Lost in Panama: Surf Camp

Lost in Panama: Surf Camp
Oasis Surf Camp is just a collection of wooden cabins and a thatched-roof dining hall built on a black-sand beach. To leave, you have to wade through a river that runs into the ocean, and walk for 15-minutes to the town. In Santa Catalina, there’s no internet cafe (that’s another 20 minute...

Go West, First Family!

5 Things to Know Before Backpacking with a Boyfriend

5 Things to Know Before Backpacking with a Boyfriend
by Hannah Dorland I spent two weeks backpacking alone in Colorado–no problem. Last week my partner of 2 years and I decided to raft down the St. Croix River and sleep on an island. Chaos ensued! Backpacking is totally different with two people. 1. Two people equals two mouths. A few granola bars,...

Road Trip Alternatives

Road Trip Alternatives
by Molly Fergus I’ll admit it, I’m lucky. I travel the country for one year, all-expenses paid, and I get to call it a job. But landing a gig as a hotdogger certainly isn’t the only way to travel the U.S. on a shoestring. Whether you want to hitch a ride in some other crazy car or befriend...

Finding our Mojo

Finding our Mojo
Even before Jen, Holly and I had set foot on Australian soil, we figured we had a pretty solid grasp on life “Down Under.” Thanks to some quality American television shows, classic 80s movies and even a few cool advertising campaigns, we’d already gleaned several critical bits of information...
